Comcast Service Restored After Crash

Things should be back to normal for Comcast customers, after a crash near the intersection of Cascade and Harrison led to an outage for 12,000-15,000 Comcast customers.

It appears a yellow car had hit a utility pole and a stone wall. Currently, at least four Comcast vehicles have responded to the scene.

Service was expected to be restored by midnight.

Comcast says it doesn't appear Colorado Springs Utilities were disrupted by the accident, but their fiber was damaged. CSU must repair the poll before Comcast can fix their equipment, a task that could take take up to two hours.

The cable provider says this affected roughly ten percent of their customers in Colorado Springs.

Affected customers were on the northwest side of Colorado Springs, including the Air Force Academy and Rockrimmon areas.

    Perhaps Mark, but I bet they can spell 'amateurish' correctly.

    Yeah, it was a nice 12 hours without cable/internet/phone. I wish they'd put these cable boxes somewhere else rather then next to a street where people can hit them.

    You people obviously don't care about your audience. You are so amaturish in your approach to broadcasting it's pathetic. Have another look at your production staff.
